(ball of foot; angular momentum)

without making it
too massive to sit on a shoulder;
maintaining rhythm ā€“
or failing that, form

even if it is just
the rifled composure of lips
with a breeze passing through

Keep it warm

Spend sympatico like it’s going out of fashion

Exist in people’s eyes without turning to stone

Take steps –

Stroll through the bar
with a modicum of swagger
and a minimum of brawl,

retaining poise enough
for an incendiary toast
when finally the shots are called
